I really need to think of something to say...
Google automatically creates a couple of XML files for anyone's Googlepage.
You've probably noticed the site navigation menu over on the side of the page. It is constructed by editing the html on each page to look like this (following the instructions I found here):
Maintaining the menu by hand is a huge waste of time, so I have a Perl script that converts my site manager page into the menu.html file, and I have another script that both downloads the site manager page and uploads arbitrary files. So, every time I add or delete a page, I just need to run these two commands:
> perl gpupload.pl --mk-menu | perl mk-menu.pl >menu.html
As a bonus, the menu file includes a script to turn on the RSS feed indicator in the address bar.
